New State Budget Passed – Deep Cuts Continue

ILSNC staffers Deborah Uhl and Jonathan Hague hold sign that reads "Fair Budget"On June 30th Gov. Brown signed state budget bills for FY 2011-12.  On a straight party-line vote, made possible by last year’s Proposition 25, all Legislative Democrats voted for the budget, while not one Republican chose to do so.  In order to pass the budget without any revenue increases, further deep cuts were made to Health and Human Services programs, Public Education and many other areas.  Programs that support low-income people with disabilities were hit particularly hard, including IHSS, SSI/SSP and MediCAL.  ILSNC / DOGFITE Northern California State Budget Alliance strongly oppose these unnecessary cuts and will continue to advocate for a fair and balanced state budget.  Visit the California Budget Project webiste for details on the budget: www.cbp.org
